SOURCE: I can tune my Panasonic

The actual HD channels use a different data coding system than SD channels. The device that is used to receive (the Panasonic if the cable plug into it and the tv is connected thru the AV cable or the tv itself) it doesn't have the capability to decode them. This is something that cannot be changed, it's a hardware limitation.
The only way to change that is to use an external tuner/decoder. If you want to record only what you see and nothing else then a new model of a HD recorder is needed. If you want to view a channel while the recorder records another then you will also need a HD tuner, to which the tv will be connected the AV way.

I have a luxor 32" lcd tv and i cant get my surrond sound speakers to work. how do i do this?


Hi well surround sound speakers require an "Interconnection" box, that is a box with Jacks that the Red & White stereo audio plug into, on one side, and the 3 SS speakers plug into the "Other side" as it were. Usually with SS we have a Rear, Front and Sub Woofer, as this means 3 sets of speakers must mate with the 2 outputs from the TV etc. So the "Line Out" stereo output from the TV, which are usually the Red & White, is the output to the interconnection box, from there it feeds into the SS decoder, some plug directly into the decoder itself, and don't use an interconnect box, but it's all the same in the end. The stereo output is fed into the SS decoder, and then SS signal is extracted from the sign in, and routed out to the appropriate speakers.

Hi, Your TV is set for HD but you will need a set top box. (PVR) You will need a digital decoder to recieve HD or digital channels. Talk to your cable or dish companies for more info. Good luck.

Can't get HD cable channels on Samsung TV


Have you check with the cable company to make sure they are broadcasting to you in HD ?
It takes more bandwith so some cable companies will charge extra for it so you will have to check.

Some HD channels won't work on new Samsung tv.


Some hd channels can only be viewed by watching thru a cable box. If you are using a cable box check with your cable provider to see what the issue is.

TV only will play HD Channels


This must be the setup for your TV box. Contact the support for your TV box.

Normaly, the TV should auto select the proper operation mode.
